Here’s a story in two parts. Part one comes from Jeb Bush, failed presidential candidate and pathetic figure of the dying conservative establishment. While speaking at Yale, Jeb! apparently felt the need to re-live the horrors of the 2016 campaign, probably because he’s desperate to put a new spin on one of our funniest modern political meltdowns. Among other things, he said this:
And earlier in his speech, Bush said that after the 2016 Republican primary in South Carolina, he returned home to children who “actually love me.” His comment was met with raucous laughter from the crowd, and several audience members interviewed after the event said they interpreted Bush’s comment as a jab at Trump.
First off, I doubt there was actually “raucous” laughter. Sorry, but Jeb! doesn’t inspire that. Second off, what a leap those Yale students are making! You interpret it as a Trump jab?! You don’t say!
Putting that aside, here’s the reaction it provoked from soon-to-be divorced Donald Trump Jr. and grinning moron Eric Trump:
It’s annoying how thoroughly they owned Jeb!, working almost in tandem. DT Jr. had the long, thorough beatdown, and Eric had the succinct #pleaseclap zinger. And we all know there’s only one way for this to end—by Jeb’s own children tweeting that they don’t actually love him.
In all seriousness, Jeb! should have gone into hiding the minute he finished his first debate with Trump, and he should really try to stay out of the public eye now.
